The most famous Sunday street market in Rome, it goes from the old Porta Portese gate in Trastevere, along the Clivo Portuense and the Via Portuense to the Via I. Nievo and beyond.
Hundreds of stalls selling antiques, old and new clothes, shoes, handbags, household goods, fabrics, jewellery, plants and flowers, bicycles and car spare parts. Now is the moment to look out for the stalls selling second hand cashmere jerseys, a smart jersey in a good state will cost around 35. The stalls are to be found beyond the via I.Nievo, they will usually have someone sitting in a deckchair on the stall who oversees the sales. It is all very good humoured but very crowded. Stamina is required for a morning at the market and anyone going should take great care of their handbag and wallet. Open all morning.
